CONS
  • Messy to open the bottle with the foil seal.
  • So saturated that if you get it into the threads, it can crust up and cause leakage.
  • A little tough to clean from certain pens.
  • I don't like the scent.

OVERALL

While I really like the original series of Blackstone inks (unscented) and I like the color of this particular one, it's been such a pain. Messy to open, messy around the mouth when the ink crusts, and I don't like the scent. It is not for me. I love the color of this one, unfortunately!

Yenderings Toronto AM03 Blind Valentine Wrap

EDIT: Guys. These sold out in like, two weeks. I uploaded these as fast as I could but they still sold out! I hope you'll still find it useful because the models will remain but the colorways/inspiration will change. Please do check them out regardless! It might inspire you to have a custom colorway created or you may just want to stay tuned for the next batch!

What's better than being cozy on a crisp autumn/winter day? Add some romantic memories or create new ones as you wander through Toronto in search of sweets and warm drinks with your love.
"Blind Valentine" is named for a song by Metric that captures some of that bittersweet feeling of past love and possibilities. Pinks and purples represent love and lilac grey linen adds that air of nostalgia. On the inside, berry pink ultrasuede and polka dots remind you to focus on the quirks and happiness of life. Or perhaps you should just indulge in some macarons and lattes instead.
This wrap will hold 6 pens (even Montblanc 149s) comfortably inside and a couple of Field Notes sized notebooks for easy access on the outside.  - Yenderings

Serious Nibbage with Pelikan Nibs - Broads and Mega Broads!

I think this video is pretty self-explanatory. I bought all these nibs with my own pennies (and many pennies it was) and I thought you might enjoy seeing some of them!

Jacques Herbin Cornaline d'Égypte Ink Review @Exaclair @JetPens

Jacques Herbin 1798 Cornaline d'Égypte is the next ink in the lineup, after Améthyste de l'Oural. I am a fan of the Améthyste and while I really like orange inks, I'm not too sure about this one.

PROS
  • Wider mouth makes it easier to fill larger pens from.
  • Very pretty to look at!
  • Solid, won't tip while you're filling pens.
  • Legible orange, even in finer nibs.

CONS
  • Requires a bit extra attention when cleaning - the shimmer can stick. 
  • I'm not wild about the shading - there is not a whole lot of it. 
  • Not inexpensive!
OVERALL

Well, I must admit I'm not crazy about this ink. I wasn't all that excited when I saw it upon release but now that I have used it more, and even though I love orange inks, this one just doesn't do much for me. I like the color when it's saturated but I don't need to have a whole bottle just for the few times I'll play with it. What do you think of it?
